Tattler’s Branch by Jan Watson

Posted by Amy Kittel on April 8th, 2014 filed in Jan Watson

I was introduced to Jan Watson’s books by my friend and fellow Christian Fiction blogger CreativeMadnessMama, back when her first book came out. I eagerly await each one to come out.


I like a good mystery, and yet you as the reader know much (not all!) of what happened from the beginning.  I chuckle because my husband will ask if me “if you know who did it why do you keep reading?”  *sigh* I want to know how, why. If I wanted to know that I’d read the 1st and last paragraphs of any book. But I love reading and discovering new places, people, and authors.

Whoops, back to my point. Just because you know part of the story doesn’t mean you know all of it.

Another reason why I liked about this book so much was all the medical stuff I had to look up. Remember, I am a RN so I know some stuff. But Jan really did her research and found some old, off the wall diagnoses and their names to help her story along. I like a book that keeps me learning. Thanks Ms. Watson!

Tattler’s Branch can be a stand alone story, or read alone. But if you love series books, I would start way back at the beginning with Troublesome Creek.

Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers and NetGalley for a free copy of this book for me to read and review with my honest opinion.  I was in no way coerced in my review.

I don’t like being the one to rewrite the back of the book or the publisher’s book description. I want to tell you why I like/don’t like the book. You can read the description elsewhere.
